Is Shady season approaching? A simple photo has turned into pandemonium over the possibility of new Eminem music.
On Tuesday (April 4), Slim Shady’s longtime manager Paul Rosenberg shared a photograph of himself and his famous client at a 7-Eleven. Fans with a keen eye were quick to point out that Em had some writing on his palm. Upon further inspection, some believed it read “April 7” or “April 9.” They wondered if this could be a possible Slim Shady release date.
Adding to speculation, Rosenberg captioned the photo: “It’s been a long time… #7elevenseries.” Of course, some fans took this to mean new music was on the way, since Em hasn’t released a project since 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP II.
Although he hasn’t released an official album since 2013, he’s been staying busy. In 2015, he executive produced the Southpaw soundtrack. More recently, he’s appeared on tracks like Big Sean’s “No Favors,” Skylar Grey’s “Kill For You,” and Crooked I’s“Welcome to Planet X.” Plus, he recently signed an exclusive deal with Griselda Records for Westside Gunn and Conway.
